  • You can't miss it if you walk uphill and take the stairs (100 steps). Read the history. Too scary to consider ascending stairs, since I broke away from the cruise excursion and I didn't have my passpo...  more »

  • Located in the historic centre of Cagliari, near the Università Degli Studi Cagliari, has this name for the little elephant sculpture, on the outer side. Has narrow staircases to get to the top, with a beautiful panoramic view to the port of Cagliari.

  • The tallest point of the town. Nicely renovated this ancient gate. Great view of the entire harbour. There are no elevator just stairs and very steep ones. Definitely needs to visit.
  • Great to see it and imagine that this was once the entrance of the city.
  • The cute elephant is smaller the expected.
  • The views are breathtaking!
  • The Tower of the elephant stands the medieval walls of Cagliari and dominates over the whole territory. Second in aletezza only the Tower of San Pancrazio, the Tower of the elephant is accessible to visitors every day of the week until 19.00. From the top you can admire a fantastic landscape that takes your breath away. I would highly recommend! Suitable for families.
